Since Lustrous' launch on April 15, all we’ve been thinking about are the many looks we can achieve using the 12-piece limited edition makeup line Nadine Lustre whipped up with Aussie beauty brand BYS. Loaded with exciting knockout punches of color on top of the essentials, the collection is a lot like her: confident and not afraid to have a little fun.
This summer, don’t let color intimidate you. Lay low on subdued hues, step out of your comfort zone, and have fun with makeup by trying these runway-approved looks.
1. Blue Crush
The international runways are bursting with one striking liner after another, and this is something you can easily cop using the smooth-gliding Lustrous Pencil Eyeliners in Sapphire or Turquoise (P199 each).
The runway look is simple: It’s just your lash lines etched in the cool blue hue with no eyeshadow needed. Put on a monochromatic outfit in pastel yellow, green, or pink, then apply the blueliner of your choice on your lash lines to make your eyes pop and have a fresh look worthy of a selfie.
Fill your brows with either the Lustrous Brow Gel (P449) or Pencil (P499), and swipe on a nude lip to make your edgy liner the focus.
2. Sunset Moment
Shades of pink and orange magically melting together is truly a sight to behold, and it’s something you can recreate on your eyes via the pigmented Lustrous Eyeshadow Palette in Calypso (P799).
For your next date night, match a billowy maxi dress with the romantic combo of rose gold, copper, and wine on your eyes. Start by blending the rose gold and copper shades on your upper lash lines to your lids, followed by the rose gold on the creases.
If you want to create more drama, add a bit of the white gold shade on your tear ducts and brow bones. Don’t forget to coat your lashes with the Lustrous Mascara (P449) for length and volume.
3. Golden Goddess
Want to enhance that sun-kissed glow you earned from your beach trips? You will need the shades in the Lustrous Highlighter and Bronzer Palette (P1,499).
After applying your foundation, choose the silky matte bronzer that works for your skin tone, then use it as a creamy contour to define your features. After blending that well, apply the pink-tinted highlighter on the apples of your cheeks, then the white highlighter on the bridge of your nose and your cupid’s bow. Dust the golden shade on your face—and even your shoulder blades—to get that golden summer glow.
4. Into the Blue
Blue eyeshadow is cool again! Don’t shy away from subversive strikes of color, and learn this easy makeup hack: Use colored eyeliner as eyeshadow. Aside from giving you seductively saturated eyes, eyeliner also lasts longer than powder eyeshadow.
Create a smoky blue eye by applying the Lustrous Eyeliner in Sapphire (P199) on your lids up to the part below your brow bones, and blend with your fingers around the rest of your lids up to the outer creases to nail the smoky effect.
Since your eyes now offer intensity, just dab a small amount of the Lustrous Cheek & Lip Tint in Raw (P399) on your cheeks and lips to complete the look. As for your outfit? Match the metallic finish of your eye makeup with an all-black look.
